Six pump boats, allegedly operating illegally, were intercepted by combined personnel of Police Station 11 under Superintendent Ariel Huesca, and Joint Task Force Zamboanga (JTFZ) led by 2nd Lieutenant JovireyTaño, along the city’s shoreline, last Monday.
Huesca told Zamboanga Today that the law enforcement operation has been extended on the coastal waters of Zamboanga City, particularly the gateway to the downtown area.
Huescasaid, he believes that illegal activities are still rampant especially along the city’s shorelines under his area of jurisdiction.
The police and JTFZ, in coordination with the City Agriculture’s Office, swooped down the coastal areas of R.T. Lim Boulevard to Baliwasan Seaside to monitor nefarious activities.
Police said that six pump boats were intercepted.During validation,it was discovered that the pump boats were either not registered, with expired registration,or with no visible body markings.
The authorities confiscated the boat’s engines and were all turned over to the City Agriculture’s Office for custody and proper disposition.
Huesca revealed that constant seaborne patrolling will help prevent crimes including kidnapping, gun running, smuggling, illegal fishing, human trafficking and others.
“The seafront is also the entrance and exit point of the city and tight security must be imposed round the clock,” Huesca said. (Eugene A. Lasprilla)
